Anti-Ageing Evening At The Bridgewater Hospital

The Heroes get enlightened on acupuncture and age-defying diets

Published on May 15th 2013.

Anti-Ageing Evening At The Bridgewater Hospital

WE all know that diet affects body shape, but how many of us realise it affects how old we look?

At this anti-ageing evening at Manchester's Bridgewater Hospital, Confidential Heroes learned about two lesser known aspects of anti-ageing: youth-promoting food and cosmetic acupuncture.

Nutritionist Jeannette Jackson shared her knowledge on the first, telling us which food groups and supplements help reduce the signs of ageing.

She trained in cosmetic acupuncture at the Acumedic Foundation in London and now specialises in this area, after 20 years of working in the NHS and in private healthcare.

She gave a willing Hero an acupuncture treatment while the other attendees watched. Joan explained that applying needles into the skin sets off a healing process which stimulates the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the skin and increases collagen production.

Anyone who was curious about how acupuncture feels could try it out – with a needle inserted into their forehead. And everyone who attended the event was offered a saving of over £400 on cosmetic acupuncture treatments at The Bridgewater Hospital.

This event was free for Manchester Confidential Heroes. Find out more about becoming a Confidential Hero.
